Foundation Awards $62,000 In Scholarships
September 25, 2019

The Clifford H. “Ted” Rees, Jr. Scholarship Foundation (Rees), a 501©(3) charitable foundation of the Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI), and the Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA), has announced scholarship awards totaling $62,000 to 36 students, including five military veteran program recipients, studying to become technicians in the HVACR and water heating industry.

“We are pleased to award scholarships to these qualified and dedicated students and veterans, and we look forward to welcoming them into the industry,” said AHRI President and CEO Stephen Yurek. “Each year, the Foundation provides aid to an increasing number of recipients, helping to promote careers in the industry and fill good-paying jobs that cannot be outsourced.”

“Developing quality workers is a critical initiative that everyone in our industry is working together to accomplish,” said ACCA Interim President and CEO Barton James. “We are proud to partner with the Rees Scholarship Foundation and AHRI to give these hard-working students and veterans scholarships to help them continue their education, which will develop into a strong workforce for our industry’s future.”

Since Rees was founded in 2003, more than $850,000 in scholarships have been awarded to over 500 deserving students and instructors.
